Inter-Udinese makes history

Inter v Udinese made history as the first Serie A game – only the second in Europe – with only foreign players.

The Nerazzurri and Friulani stepped out at San Siro with 22 foreigners to begin the match.

According to Mister Chip, this is the first ever such scenario in a Serie A fixture.

Inter: Handanovic (Slovenia); Nagatomo (Japan), Miranda (Brazil), Murillo (Colombia), Juan Jesus (Brazil); Brozovic (Croatia), Felipe Melo (Brazil), Kondogbia (France); Biabiany (France), Icardi (Argentina), Jovetic (Montenegro)
